Badger Corporation has a proven record of success with over 25 years of conducting appraisals on a world wide basis. Appraisal personnel draw upon the experience of the auction division, which is involved in the daily buying and selling of machinery, equipment, real estate, and inventories throughout the United States.
This constant involvement in the marketplace gives Badger Corporation a distinct advantage over other firms who do only appraisal work – an advantage reflected by both realistic and accurate value estimates. Accurate appraisals are designed to assist in decisions that have direct financial consequences.
Offering answers to problems concerning the Liquidation Value, Orderly Liquidation Value, Market Value, Value In Use, and Insurable Value of Assets. In addition, appraisals provide the necessary guidelines with respect to leveraged buy outs, mergers and acquisitions, the allocation of purchase price, tax structure and basis for depreciation, present worth, lease financing, and estate planning.
Badger is committed to auction excellence, and we rest our reputation on every sale. Our experience spans two generations of active participation encompassing years of service. Badger is skilled in combining three important elements crucial to successful auctions. These elements are: An extensive knowledge of the assets being offered for sale, an understanding of auction buyers and their needs, and the ability to stimulate interest and excite the auction audience. Our personnel are involved daily in the buying and selling of machinery, equipment, inventories, product lines and real estate. The knowledge and experience developed from this involvement enables Badger to sell a company’s assets intelligently and ensures the highest attainable price.
Complete and thorough preparation is a trademark of Badger. Auction items must be properly organized and tagged which, in some cases, demands that our crew arrives weeks before the sale. We organize the sale in a way that stimulates interest from both small and large buyers.
Registered bidders receive a detailed auction catalogue, which lists the items available for sale. Buyers are then able to follow along during the auction. Our computerized registration and billing system enables auction clerks to furnish a complete listing of each buyer’s purchases. Sale proceeds are automatically tallied for up-to-the-minute status reports.
The right price for your property is the one set by a competitive market. And there is no faster, more direct way to ascertain your property’s value than through a Badger Corporation real estate auction. Our aggressive, customized marketing programs are specifically designed to attract the largest possible pool of qualified buyers, and through the competitive bidding process, buyers and sellers quickly learn what the market will pay for a property. The auction format is well suited to many situations, including:
Unique properties with a difficult-to-determine market value. These include anything from churches, trophy homes, and mansions, to jails, large industrial buildings, and landmark hotels.
Properties with a small but geographically dispersed buying pool. A customized marketing program can educate all potential buyers concurrently and convene them for a single sales event.
A portfolio of multiple properties. An owner selling a group of properties may wish to sell them all at once. For example, the owner of a group of apartment buildings may wish to avoid selling them one at a time, as this could cause management costs per property to skyrocket until all properties are finally sold.
A seller seeks a compressed selling timeline. This includes the owner of industrial or commercial space who wishes to avoid a prolonged – and costly – cycle of showings, negotiations, and enduring potentially deal-killing contingencies.
Sellers who need a specific date of sale. This can apply to sellers looking to clear the books by year’s end or looking to sell before expensive carrying costs erode value.
